The Group Division Voith Hydro is part of the Voith Group and a leading full-line supplier as well as trusted partner for equipping hydropower plants. Voith develops customized, long-term solutions and services for large and small hydro plants all over the world. Its portfolio of products and services covers the entire life cycle and all major components for large and small hydro plants, from generators, turbines, pumps and automation systems, right through to spare parts, maintenance and training services, and digital solutions for intelligent hydropower.
Large hydro plants are the biggest power producing facilities in the world. Some hydropower stations even have twice the capacity of the current largest nuclear power stations. With Voith, you have an experienced partner in complex hydro power applications and a continuous innovator at your side.
The increasing demand for energy and the use of different energy sources worldwide requires greater flexibility and more precise data from hydropower providers. Plants are therefore networked with the power supply grid, centrally managed, and software algorithms control many processes on their own. Hydropower is already highly automated; now Voith is making it intelligent.
Small hydropower plants are an important component of the energy mix. They have the potential to ensure a stable local power supply. The development of renewable energies can also be boosted with hydropower. Around 64% of the worldwide hydropower resources remain unused – the majority of which would be ideal for small hydropower solutions.
